BALTIMORE, May 15 (UPI) -- Jeremy Guthrie gave up only two hits over eight innings Friday in carrying Baltimore to an 8-1 victory over Cleveland.

The Orioles have won only 12 times this season, but three of those decisions have come in their last three games.

Cleveland's only hits off Guthrie (2-4) were an RBI single by Jhonny Peralta in the first and a leadoff single by Travis Hafner in the seventh. In between those hits, Guthrie retired 16 straight batters.

Baltimore backed up Guthrie with a 14-hit attack. Luke Scott, Ty Wigginton and Corey Patterson had three hits each and Miguel Tejada had a two-run single during a four-run sixth.

Justin Materson (0-4) was roughed up for six runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 to take the loss.

The game was delayed at the start for 67 minutes by rain.
